Question about Whirlpool GHW9150 Front Load Washer
My duet washer has been leaking water after a wash is complete from the rubber seal through the outlet at the top of the rubber ring which faces you when you open the door. I have been finding either a small puddle inside the machine if I close the door after emptying it and last night I had a gush of water from the outlet spill onto the floor. The machine works great and this only occurs after the cycle is complete. What is wrong ?
Open your wall faucet to full pressure to stop the drip. If this does not work simply change the inlet valve of the machine which is at the top, where the water enters the machine. You can do it yourself. And rate me plz if helped.

This problem is commonly caused by one of the door bellow seals coming loose, or if the bellow has a small rip or tear. The following link will provide you with guidance on how to disassemble and/or replace if necessary:
Now...to determine if you have a bellow seal leak, remove the lower panel under the door and observe the area under the bellow in the front where the drain pump is. If the bellow is leaking, it is common for the front counterweight (looks like a concrete block) to become wet or damp. Inspect the area under the rubber folds of the bellow around the perimeter of the door for crack, rips, or tears. It is common for the rubber to wear out due to age and require replacement. If no holes are found, make sure the dispenser tube that enters the bellow from the left hand side is inserted properly through the rubber. Sometimes, the tube is not inserted all the way and will cause water to drip behind the bellow during the wash and rinse cycles. Also, check the rear bellow clamp that holds the rear portion of the bellow to the front of the wash tub. If this clamp becomes loose, it can leak and/or cause the bellow to become dislodged. There is a a 7mm nut that you can tighten behind the front panel. Do not overtighten, as this can damage the clamp or wash tub.
If there is no standing water in the wash tub, this is NOT caused by the water inlet valve. Replacement bellows can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartpros.com, or repairclininc.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop around for the best price. If you still have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
